Flag Requests

flagResidents of the 16th District of California may purchase a United States flag through Congressman Jim Costa's office in Washington, DC.

Flags come in different sizes and fabrics with the added option of having the flag flown over the Capitol. A flag may be flown in honor of an individual, a group, or an organization, for a specific occasion, and on a specific date. Costs vary according to the details of your order.

Congressman Costa is unable to donate a flag.  

To purchase a flag, please submit a flag order form indicating the type and quantity of flags in your order. If you would like a flag flown over the Capitol, please specify the names, date, and occasion to appear on a certificate of dedication to accompany the flag.

In order for your request to be processed, please send a check made payable to Congressman Jim Costa Office Supply Account. For more information regarding prices please refer to the Flag Postage Calculator.

If your request is for a specific date, please submit your request at least five weeks in advance. Also, please allow six to eight weeks after the flying date for flags to be delivered to you.

You will receive a phone call from Congressman Costa's Washington Office to verify your order. So, please list a few alternate phone numbers. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Washington office at (202) 225-3341.
